This Cranberry Cherry Crisp could truly not be easier and has the added bonus of being Vegan & Gluten Free! What a perfect holiday dessert, that is also pretty healthy! Lot of antioxidants and fiber!
If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, then you know that my Mom is severely gluten and lactose intolerant. I usually try to make her a special dessert that she can eat, because she can eat none of the goodies that the rest of us enjoy!
What could be more festive this time of year than Cranberries? Ocean Spray has named them the official, unofficial fruit of the holidays. Those of you in the US are, I’m sure familiar with their commercial. I love their characters. They are so funny.
